Yup - I was in the band in high school. We all got back together this weekend to practise for the Redemption game. What is the redemption game you ask?
Check this out...
My high school football team is replaying my senior year Thanksgiving day game with our rival school - from Phillipsburg NJ. The original game ended in a 7-7 tie. Yes these guys are now 31-33 years old and will suit up and play "real" football again!
And what's a football game without the band!? We will also be taking the stage and attempting to spell out an "E" for Easton on the field. We will also be playing in the stands during the game.
It was so amazing to see my old friends!
Here are my fellow flutes!
And here are some pics from the rest of the practise...
About 30 of us came back for practise on Saturday and hopefully even more will come back next week. Many people are actually flying in from places around the country and as far away as Japan! They can obviously only be there for one weekend - so next week will be even more fun!
I can't wait to see how good (or bad) we all do!
